Cyclist killed in crash with car in Croydon

A cyclist has been killed in a collision with a car in Croydon, south London.

The air ambulance was called but the man, thought to be in his 30s, was pronounced dead at the scene in Mitcham Road shortly before 05:45 BST.

The driver of the car stopped at the scene of the accident, the Metropolitan Police said.

The cyclist is believed to be the ninth to die on London's roads this year, Transport for London said.

Police officers are appealing for witnesses to the collision.

On Thursday, cyclist Tarsem Dari, 60, died after colliding with a tipper lorry in Southall Broadway, west London.

The 34-year-old driver of the tipper lorry stopped at the scene.

He was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving and must return to a west London police station in November, said police.
